Christopher Mark Goodell

Police Officer Chris Goodell was killed when his patrol car was struck by a tractor trailer on Route 17, near Bergen Avenue, shortly before 1:30 am.

Officer Goodell was parked on the shoulder of Route 17, running radar, when the semi swerved onto to the shoulder and collided with the back of the patrol car. The patrol car was then pushed into a retaining wall.

An off duty deputy from out of state was the first to arrive at the collision and immediately began providing aid to Officer Goodell.

Officer Goodell was a U.S. Marine Corps veteran and had served with the Waldwick Police Department for five years. He is survived by his fiancee.

Home from Police Week... Our Fifth...I can't believe another year has passed since we were here for the first time and heard them say your name...More names have been engraved on the Wall. The void can never be filled, though like all those who have been taken from us, you will never be forgotten. All that you believed in, all that you accomplished in your life, all the lives you touched and the love you gave shall echo in eternity. Missing you so much Christopher. Until we meet again my precious son...you will always be Forever in our Hearts #38!
